Global music icon Marc Anthony joins E1’s star-studded ownership roster

Marc Anthony, the chart-topping, award-winning, highest selling salsa singer and minority owner of the NFL team the Miami Dolphins, is adding a new title to his trophy cabinet: owner of the new E1 Team Miami, as part of the UIM E1 World Championship.

Anthony’s E1 Team Miami will be on the startline at the first ever E1 event next February in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, alongside other teams owned by some of the world’s biggest celebrity names, among them Tom Brady, Rafael Nadal, Steve Aoki, Sergio Perez, Didier Drogba, and Virat Kohli.

Beyond the excitement on the racecourse, E1’s commitment to sustainable marine practices, says Anthony, aligns with his dedication to preserving Miami’s waters for future generations.

“I have always been fascinated by all things nautical,” said Marc Anthony in a statement. “Water is the essence of life, and as the human population approaches the limits of what the planet can sustain, it is time to cherish water for the essential value it has as an enabler of life. I am thrilled to join forces with E1 to welcome to the dawn a new era of competition and a new standard of race excellence, and I am looking forward to embarking on a journey that has never been witnessed before, an era where passion is a given and winning is a must.”
